Simple, fast and efficient. Our software support takes our clients through the steps of Advanced Structural Modelling. We give our clients all the information necessary to develop their projects.
In this section you can find a flexible support to meet your needs.

T0 | STKO Pre&Post Processor Interface
An overview of STKO Pre and Post processor interface in all their parts (Windows, features and skills).
T1 | STKO How to navigate
How to start with STKO: create, edit and save new files and how to navigate in the working space. (Keyboard and mouse commands).
T2 | STKO Geometry Modeling Boundary Representation (BRep)
Boundary representation of models are composed of two parts: topology and geometry (surfaces, curves and points). The main topological items are: faces, edges and vertices. A face is a bounded portion of a surface; an edge is a bounded piece of a curve and a vertex lies at a point. Other elements are the shell (a set of connected faces), etc.
T3 | STKO CAD Commands
How to create basic 2D and 3D geometries (line, surface, solids…), edit geometries (copy, scale, move…) and also how to do the Boolean operations (union, merge, etc).
T4 | STKO Interactions local axes
How to state the relationship that occurs between model elements through interactions (node to node; node to element and general link interactions). Local axes: how to assign them to the geometries.
T5 | Defining and Assigning Properties
Definition (timeSeries, frictionModel) and physical (materials, sections, special_purpose) and element properties of the model: how to define and assign them to the geometries.
T6 | Boundary Conditions and Loads
How to attribute boundary conditions like constraints, forces and loads to the geometry.
T7 | Meshing the Geometrial Model and Partition
Meshing phase of the model description: starting from the relationship between seeds and meshes till how to set and control them. How to manage meshes and the model partitions.
T8 | Analysis Steps and Solver
How to set solving parameters and run the Analysis.
T9 | Post Processing Module
An overview of post-processing module. How to manage an OpenSees output file, view plots (deformed shape, surface color map, fiber section plot…), animation and extracting chart data.
What is and how to apply a special purpose property.
